Stunning Gingrich Admission

Today, Newt Gingrich made a stunning admission while a guest on the radio program of James Dobson, the head of Focus on the Family, now the pre-eminent organization on the Christian Right.

That's right, Gingrich finally admitted that he wasn't God when he said that "there are times that I have fallen short of my own standards. There's certainly times when I've fallen short of God's standards."

Tsk! Tsk! The things people will do to become President!

Gingrich was ostensibly on Dobson's program to confess that he had committed adultery when he was married to his second wife Marianne. However, acknowledging that there is a god that is not an instrument for his own vision of American and human history must have been a lot tougher for a person of Newt Ginrich's world-encompassing ego.

Fortunately for Newt's newfound piety, he hasn't heard of Jesus' saying in Matthew 20:16 that "the last shall be first, and the first last."

If he knew that the Christian god didn't value winning life's competitions or imposing one's will on other people, Newt would go back to playing god himself.
